I really like DeKoninck. In Antwerp, there is a cafe that sells yeast shots from the DeKoninck brewery. It’s a good drinkable yeasty ale. There are plenty of better Belgians, but DeKoninck is just fine. Thanks to my local packy for ordering it up.

For a belgian, this just had a bland and negative overall taste. Spiced aroma and taste nonexistant. There was no character to the flavor, just unbalanced overtones of malt and unsavory darkness. Bottom tier belgian. I really do not see how people enjoy this one, considering most other options are superior.

draft@ jane, nyc. Clear rusty brown, very thin head, almost no lacing. Thin mouthfeel, not much body. A little fruit in the nose, but light. Just kind of dull.. but very drinkable.

Bottled 330 ml. Brownish red thin head. Fruity aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Malty with some bitterness. Not much to it but need to try again.

Light and green tasting. Dry without much maltiness. Takes a while to get used to.

This was pretty good. I loved it when I had it, but I have had Belgian beers that are a lot better. This is a good beer to have second. If you have it first you won’t get a strong enough taste. I had Aventinus and then this and it worked pretty well.

Nothing extra special here. Poured to a brownish red color in the glass with a thin, diminishing head. Very lightly carbonated. Had an aroma and taste of sweet caramel malt flavor. Very lightly hopped, with only hints of fruity flavor. Some butterscotch flavor from diacetyl. Reminded me of an English style ale. Pretty light on the palate. Very easy drinking.

Bottle dated 6-16-04. Poured a small ivory head with a fair amount of lacing, transparent, cabonated and an orange hue. Malty, sweet, some caramel notes, and fruity, Flavor was sweet, malty, watery, smooth, and some fruityness. Smooth, watery, thin mouthfeel. An easy drinking beer IMO.

Tap at Hopleaf, Chicago. Big, creamy head(served in De Koninck Boleke). Slightly fruity, malt laden aroma. Big, malty, smooth beer with a nice touch of Saaz hopping to pepper the malt, especially the finish. Very lager-like finish to me...this one is best on tap, I think.

Bottle via JoeM, thanks: Reddish amber hue with nice frothy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of candi sugar, ripened apples and pears, orange zest, aromatic and grassy hops, light caramel, and zest yeast esters. The taste starts with a bittersweet note, some malt and a acidic fruit content. Zesty and bitter finish with a dose of pepper. The feel is lively but a bit thin. Refreshing for a Belgian Ale, a session style brew. A like this more than average ratebeerian I guess.
